re: Creed II (2018, D: Caple, Jr.) S: Jordan, Stallone, Lundgren, Munteanu, Thompson

Stallone just announced that he will not be directing this. Instead, Steven Caples, Jr. will take over--a guy who doesn't even have a Wiki page! He directed an indie film called The Land last year.

"The character of Adonis Creed reflects this generation, and I believe it is important to have a director who is part of it. That is why I think we are lucky to have Stephen (sic) Caples, Jr. A wonderful new talent take over the directorial chores and make the story as relatable as possible....He and Michael B Jordan will deliver a knockout!"

A lot of people didn’t know who Coogler was either when he did Creed.

Coogler had done a highly acclaimed film, though.

I'm not saying it's a bad move--in fact, I was a little worried about Stallone taking back over. I think his thinking is correct that we need someone younger to direct this, we'll just see if this guy is the right one to do it. But what a big break for him.

My first choice would have been for Coogler to come back, but obviously that wasn't going to happen.

Same. I was hoping Coogler would take hold of the sequel and not Stallone. I personally think that Coogler did an amazing job with Creed.

Fuck I hope this new Director will do a great job.

So this is random, but this morning on my way to work I got stuck behind a van that had a license plate that read IVNDRGO. I am guessing they are excited about the plot of Creed 2....

There was also a rumor going around yesterday that Brock Lesnar was up for the part of Drago's son, but looks like that has been shot down.

it shouldn't have had to be shot down because it never should've been reported by sites in the first place. here's what Stallone wrote as a caption of a photoshop of Rocky fighting Brock:
"Big challenges come in all shapes and forms! By the way this is just for entertainment, Drago's son will be played by a new unknown…#brocklesnar #rockybalboa1976"
It's like this "news sites" stopped aftre the first sentence and never even read "By the way..."

Stallone has always been known to give big breaks to new directors. Hell, he drafted Patrick Hughes for Expendables after doing Red Hill for 500k. Hughes recently directed The Hitman's Bodyguard.

Coogler had Fruitvale Station then graduated to Creed and now Black Panther. He doesn't have a wiki page? #whogivesafuck

Apparently Cheo Hodari Coker, the showrunner for Luke Cage, is co-writing this with Stallone.

A colleague of mine is acquainted with Coker.

I just thought it was funny that the guy got a big gig like that and doesn't even have a Wiki page. That's all.

And you are correct, Stallone does seem to like to give out breaks to up-and-comers.

Stallone posted this today. Looks like really bad bootleg DVD fan art.

Man this is so corny, I was hoping he would fight Thunderlips' son and Clubber Lang's son. Then after that he would take on Ivan Drago’s son.

I think Carl Weathers should show up at the end and tell Jr. that he faked his death after betting against himself in his last fight, Pulp Fiction style.

I wish the storyline wouldn't become some sort of a family grudge match. I know it would bring in the audience but it just seems so short-sighted.

I think it is brilliant. There really was nowhere else for it to go.

Exactly. But I think you and I might be advocating for two completely different things.

Creed was a nice surprise.... felt grounded in reality like Rocky 1 and 2. This is bringing Creed into cheesy Rocky 3 and 4 territory. Now those movies have become classics in their own right, but more for nostalgia cheese appeal than being actually good movies.

While Hughe's Expendables film was okay, man oh man did I love Red Hill...Nice shout out...I might rewatch that one tonight...I remember buying it blind at HMV when it came out and was blown away when I watched it...Very suspenseful...

re: Creed II (2018, D: Caple, Jr.) S: Jordan, Stallone, Lundgren, Munteanu, Thompson

Production begins today in Philadelphia on Metro Goldwyn Mayer Pictures (MGM) and Warner Bros. Pictures’ Creed II, starring Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone, reprising their roles of Adonis Creed and Rocky Balboa, respectively. Creed II is the continuation of the Rocky saga and sequel to the 2015 critically-acclaimed and crowd-pleasing 2015 hit Creed, which took in more than $170 million at the worldwide box office. Ryan Coogler (Black Panther), who directed the first film, returns to the franchise as an executive producer on Creed II. The new film is being directed by Steven Caple Jr., who helmed the acclaimed 2016 drama The Land.

“When I wrote and directed ‘Creed,’ I wanted to tell a human story about a family from a new perspective, while also paying homage to the Rocky characters we’ve all grown up knowing and loving. I’ve known Steven was an amazing filmmaker since our days at USC film school together, so I can’t wait to see what he, Sly, Mike, and Tessa bring to this next chapter,” said Coogler.

Caple Jr. said, “It’s an honor to be a part of the franchise and work with such a thoughtful team. I got involved because I’ve always been a Rocky fan and I enjoy stories with heart and substance. But when Ryan put his touch on ‘Creed’ I felt another level of connection to the franchise. It started to feel personal for many different reasons. This next ‘Creed’ is a tale beyond the boxing ring and dives deep into family, legacy, and fears. I’m excited to share my view and collaborate with the talented cast and crew.”

“Ryan and Steven are voices for their generation and their shared vision for Creed has brought the Rocky franchise to an entirely new audience. We know audiences will continue to embrace the legacy that Sly created so many years ago,” said producer Irwin Winkler.

Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed. Between personal obligations and training for his next big fight, he is up against the challenge of his life. Facing an opponent with ties to his family’s past only intensifies his impending battle in the ring. Rocky Balboa is there by his side through it all and, together, Rocky and Adonis will confront their shared legacy, question what’s worth fighting for, and discover that nothing’s more important than family. Creed II is about going back to basics to rediscover what made you a champion in the first place, and remembering that, no matter where you go, you can’t escape your history.

Also reprising their roles from the first film are Tessa Thompson as Bianca, Phylicia Rashad as Mary Anne, Wood Harris as Tony ‘Little Duke’ Burton, and Andre Ward as Danny ‘Stuntman’ Wheeler. The new cast is rounded out with Florian “The Big Nasty” Munteanu as Viktor Drago, Dolph Lundgren returning to the role of Ivan Drago, and Russell Hornsby as Buddy Marcelle. Creed II will be distributed theatrically in the U.S. by MGM on November 21, 2018, and Warner Bros. Pictures will distribute the film internationally.

Caple Jr. directs from an original screenplay written by Stallone based on characters from the Rocky franchise. The film is produced by Irwin Winkler, Charles Winkler, William Chartoff, David Winkler, Kevin King-Templeton, and Stallone. Coogler, Jordan and Guy Riedel will executive produce.

Collaborating with Caple Jr. is a creative team led by director of photography Kramer Morgenthau (Thor: The Dark World, Game of Thrones); production designer Franco Carbone (The Expendables, Billionaire Boys Club); costume designers Lizz Wolf (A Single Man, Dreamgirls); art director Jesse Rosenthal (Black Panther, Trumbo); fight coordinator Daniel Hernandez (Avengers: Infinity War, The Fate of the Furious); technical boxing advisor Robert Sale (Grudge Match, Ali); special effects coordinator Patrick White (Baby Driver, Deepwater Horizon) and VFX producer Crystal Dowd (Straight Outta Compton, Pitch Perfect 2). Filming will take place primarily in Philadelphia with additional locations in New Mexico.

Creed, directed by Coogler, was released by Metro Goldwyn Mayer Pictures, Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema in November 2015 and went on to garner many honors for Stallone, including a Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture, and an Academy Award nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role.
